It's the chastity, isn't it?

According to the Washington Post, the Catholic church is having nun-recruitment issues.

I like the phrase "spiritual fortitude" and wish I had more of it.

It might be the "obedience"?

I wanted to be a nun for years. I used to dream for hours on end about being a nun. Muslims, however, don't believe in monasticism. I wanted to establish the first Muslim women's convent (of sorts) - for all us unmarried women who wanted to be in community and do kickass things in our society like those women in Sister Act.

I am working on starting a UU monastery. It's really hard to get UUs to picture what that might be like.
